Important information.

The flashcard module was originally written by Valery for 1.9. It was hosted on the old Moodle plugins database, there was also an version initially ported to Moodle 2.

Tomek took over the work on it, finished porting into Moodle 2 and done few releases on the new plugins database page (this one). The latest version of this module is 3.2 and is available on github: . It includes set of fixes from alekiy that should get it to work on Moodle 2.5. You can use it but this development is dis-continued.

Valery has now updated his branch of flashcard module into Moodle 2.5. The source code is and the latest release is also on this, new plugins database as 2.4.0 (Build 2012040100). This is the branch you should be using now.

Both versions of flashcard module have diverged and are not compatible with each other. It's not possible to easily switch from one version (3.1 or 3.2) to another (2.4.0) without re-installing (and hence loosing all data).

    Hi Julien, could you : give me the plugin code_increment you are using (in version.php). there was an issue in an empty function to be kept on the backup iplementation... but should be fixed now. Thee is no visible issue in backup in development site for 3.2. To be really sure, i'm going to bump the code increment to 3.2.0002 and push it again in moodle. In case you still have issues, turn on your debugging mode and get error messages that appear at backup.

    I have the same problem as Julien - no more restores or backup of courses after the upgrade in July to Moodle 3.2.4
    Flash Card Set 143 2017022000 Hide Uninstall

    Debugging is on developer mode, and this is the message we get.
    Fatal error: Class 'backup_flashcard_activity_task' not found in /var/www/html/moodle/backup/util/factories/backup_factory.class.php on line 107

    We installed this on Moodle 3.1.6 and it resulted in a bug affecting the entire site: you could not delete any resource from any course. Problem was fixed after uninstalling plugin

    Hello Valery! I have Flashcards (3.2.0 -Build 2017022000) working fine on my moodle install (Moodle 3.2.1+ (Build: 20170119))... except that the students of I, the admin, can't "reset" leitner stacks of cards. I read on the forum that I can go in the Flashcard activity and to "Summary" then reset the "attempt" of a user. But when I go to summary, all I have is a dropdown to select groups of users but no users show up. There is just the dropdown. So I can't reset the Leitner stacks for a user. Am I missing something? Is this something you can help with? Thank you! Julien

    Hi, this is a really cool plugin. Unfortunatley it breaks course archiving. This is the error message that was logged:

    PHP Fatal error: Class backup_flashcard_activity_task contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (backup_activity_task::define_my_settings) in /var/www/..../mod/flashcard/backup/moodle2/backup_flashcard_activity_task.class.php on line 55

    Is there a chance to get this fixed?

    I found a work around by installing version 3.0.0 of this plugin. If you already installed and used 3.2.0 you may not want to remove the plugin to install the former one. You can get around this issue by merging the code of the old version into the new one. Just follow the instructions given here:

    I checked the code and the difference to the old version is, that links in the backup-file that link to the flash-card activity will stay absolute - so if you import from one moodle to another maybe some of your links will not work anymore. Hopefully we geht this fixed by the plugin maintainers!

    Will there be any support for Moodle 3.3?

    It is really a good plugin. I found it very useful.

    I would like to know if there isn't someone out there who would continue development, and maybe add some features? Asking miracles I know ...
    I think this is a great learning tool.

    My question for today: Is there some way the questions can be exported into a file? I'd like to use some cards for other grades too, any suggestions?
    Thank you

    The only plugin for that that I have got to work without having a backup error is found and I have switched back and forth between the two.
